More About John R.

ADHD and Executive Function Coach

Hey! My name is John, and I am excited to introduce myself as one of your Thrivister Academic coaches! I am a coach who wants to know the full student so that not only will your academics improve, but you will feel more confident in your abilities and be able to advocate for what you need to find success in all areas of your life. I want to help you focus on what makes you a superhero.


 I happily describe myself as a pop culture and history nerd who prides himself on being a movie buff. I’m your guy if you want to talk about anything in the American Presidents (I can list them all and the years they served), the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Harry Potter world. We can have a healthy discussion as to why Slytherin is the best Hogwarts House or why Captain America is usually wrong in most situations. I’d love to connect about movies, especially if it’s history or fantasy related and I look forward to learning what you like to watch in your free time. Give me your favorite movie recommendations and suggestions! 


I am from Georgia, but went to college in Boston and bounced around from Los Angeles to New York City and everywhere in between. I have worked with high school and college students for the last 10 years and really enjoy bringing the fun into academic success. I truly believe that conquering your obstacles doesn’t have to always be scary. Let’s find your particular strengths, which will lead to success from an enjoyable and exciting perspective! 


I really enjoy working with students to strengthen executive functioning skills and helping them see their ADHD as a positive component of what makes them special. I know that ADHD can cause anxiety and unique stressors, but ADHD does not have to be a hindrance. From my own experience with organizational difficulties, I know how hard it can be when you have competing priorities and moving deadlines. It’s not easy to be able to juggle everything when it seems like it’s coming at you with immediacy, but there are ways to make it work! We just need to find a way that will help students use their strengths to their full potential.
